Tortoise? On Long Island?
Look what I found creeping around my backyard.
I've never seen a tortoise ANYWHERE in the wild on Long Island. Do you think its an escaped pet? Any ideas on the type of tortoise this is? I gave it some apples, but he seemed really freaked out when he saw me, so I locked up the dog left him alone. I wonder if he's attracted to my brand new compost bin!
Thanks for looking!
